Breathing practices for mind, body and every day. A scientific based breathing method to help optimise your health, mental clarity and performance.
Whether you are a sports enthusiast, pro-athlete, yoga teacher, physical or mental health professional, in mainstream or alternative practice, a coach, public speaker, performer or like to help improve your health on a daily basis then the science backed Oxygen Advantage breathing method is for you.
Changing your breathing not only can help to improve the strength of your breathing muscles and tolerance of breathlessness, it can also help you change your body chemistry. Improving your breathing can help you take control over your racing mind and the feelings that arise and help you focus. You can improve symptoms of panic disorder, depression and anxiety. You can boost your memory, balance your mood better, concentrate like a pro and help you get a sound sleep that sees you waking up ready to take on the world.
About 47% of our waking hours is spent thinking about what isn’t going on. When your mind is constantly pre-occupied, it is hard to stay focused. It seems us humans spend a lot of time thinking about what happened in the past, worry about what might happen in the future, or may just never happen at all.
Our mind wanders, our thoughts race, and if we are not on the 'watch out' we unconsciously attach emotions to scenarios played out solely in our mind. This appears to be our brain’s default mode of operation, and quite honestly, it is exhausting.
As a result, it does not really come as a surprise that we are feeling stressed and low at times. At night, you lie awake with a wired mind and an exhausted body.
If your aim is to better focus and help your concentration, move better, feel calmer, improve your posture and quality of sleep, then this course is for you. Functional breathing pattern training will help to support your spine and improve your posture. This breathwork training addresses breathlessness and exhaustion, helps improve your blood circulation and oxygen delivery to your cells.
The Oxygen Advantage breathwork practice has some things in common with ancient yogic breathing methods but is substantiated by today's scientific research. The breathing exercises can be easily incorporated into your daily life whatever your current level of health or fitness and will give you tools for life.

“The nose is for breathing, the mouth is for eating.”
Scientists discovered that our capacity to breathe has changed through the course of human evolution. We now know that how we breathe has notably worsened since the dawn of the Industrial Age. According to the scientists, 90% of us are breathing incorrectly. Dysfunctional breathing, like breathing through your mouth or breathing using your upper chest can either cause or aggrevate a list of chronic diseases. (See: Breath, the new science of a lost art by James Nestor)
On a positive note, some of these researchers were also showing that many of our modern illnesses such as asthma, anxiety, ADHD, sleep apnea, psoriasis, PTSD can either be reduced or reversed by coming back to how we are meant to be breathing. The Bohr Effect taught us that less volume air facilitates better oxygenation of the blood. The optimum breathing rate at rest is about 5.5 breaths per minute – 5.5 seconds inhaling and 5.5 seconds exhaling.
